Rethinking EU migration and asylum policies: Managing immigration jointly with countries of origin and transit

 Registration is closed for this event

Asylum and migration policy continues to be high up on the EU policy agenda and will remain an important topic for the next European Commission. Though current positions in the European Council regarding how to make progress on the Common European Asylum System seem deadlocked, there is considerable scope for dialogue and debate on the future of EU asylum policy as well as the wider issue of improving overall management of migration.

This MEDAM conference is launching our annual assessment report on asylum and migration policy. This year’s report is titled “Rethinking EU migration and asylum policies: Managing immigration jointly with countries of origin and transit” It has three chapters, each of which we will debate at the conference:

 

  • Citizens’ attitudes towards the design of asylum policies
  • Cooperation with third countries on migration
  • Moving EU asylum and migration policy forward

 

Anyone working on international migration, development and cooperation is encouraged to join our panellists at this debate and to contribute to the discussion during the three Q&A sessions, and coffee and lunch breaks.

State Secretary for Migration María del Consuelo Rumí Ibáñez (Spain), Ambassador H.E. Ms. Teneng Mba Jaiteh (Gambia) and MEP Delara Burkhardt are among the confirmed speakers.
